James Heron’s Study of the Didache

The Didache, or The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, was one of the earliest of the non-canonical writings of the early church, most scholars dating its composition to the first century. In this book James Heron examines The Didache and the light it sheds on the practices of the early church.
